Practicing Objective-C in Xcode.  I haven’t really been able to do much over the last week, having worked over 40 hours in 5 days, but I’ve been able to do a bit here and there.  While the code shown is INCREDIBLY messy, it was just a quick test on how to use classes and instance methods in Obj-C.

Instance Methods are quite interesting, in that they differ from the way methods are called in C, C++, C#, or really any other language.

For example, a method call in C# (from within a class) would look like this…

myClassObject MyCustomClass = new MyCustomClass();
myClassObject.myCustomClassFunction();

Whereas in Objective-C, it looks like this…

myClassObject *MyClass = [[MyClass alloc] init];
[myClassObject custom:parameter function:parameter];


So you can see why it’s a little bit tricky to get used to Objective-C.  However, I’ve found that for some reason, I actually prefer Objective-C’s way of calling methods, it somehow makes it easier once you get used to it.

It’s been a classic rock sort of day…

Sometimes, you just have to groove to the tunes of the ’70s and early ’80s.

Especially when the song has cowbell.  For example, this song by The Steve Miller Band…

JetBrains AppCode: Objective-C IDE done right

This is an AMAZING replacement IDE for developing Mac/iOS apps without using Xcode.  Although Xcode is a decent editor, it does lack a lot of basic features and is cluttered and messy - especially when developing your app’s interface!

AppCode is well worth the $99 for the personal license - I think it might be my very next software purcase!

I’m still really proud of this video I shot with my Canon T3i DSLR.  I plan to shoot some more footage with it soon, and see what else I can whip up together!

Computer Stupidities

A lot of older stories (particularly about DOS and floppy disks), but it still made me laugh really hard!
